The liberalisation of telecoms in the UK has had great benefits but BT is prevented from connecting optical fibre to each house. Digital cellular radio can deliver 1000 bits/s. Information Communications Systems include data, cabling and equipment to process voice, text, data and graphics. By the year 2005 optical fibre will be affordable in the workplace removing the current limitations on bandwidth. The BRICC project recommended more cooperative working. Business, ICS and manufacturing are likely to converge in the future.
